Following just on the perimeter
dancing on the horizon
skirting along the periphery
the Great Light slips quietly through.
If you try to capture Him
you will find yourself empty handed
alone where He ought to have been.
If you try to mimic his brilliance
you will find tarnished confetti
crinkled and dirty tinfoil.
If you disdain Him
you will find yourself badgered
beleaguered at every turn.
But if you humble yourself
you become exulted.
If you realize your insignificance
you come significant.
If you adore without expectation
the world rolls in love at your feet.
The tiny sparks of the seeking tendrils
lighting the darkest recesses
always creating, reaching further
manifesting more Light
